Episode 44 and there’s a lot of brilliant news to break down!

This week Aaron held down the pod while Ped is off relaxing on vacation. So Aaron rifled through the rolodex of But Why Tho’s podcast hosts to get someone on to help him out. Of course, Jared from Project T.A.H.I.T.I. stepped up to save the day and bring his vast comic knowledge to this weeks podcast.

Warner Media had a slew of news since last weeks podcast. JJ Abrams has been officially announced to produce content exclusively for Warner on their various platforms in the shape of TV and movies. Aaron and Jared discussed the rumor of whether he could be heading up rebooted DC movie universe.

Watchmen and His Dark Materials also released debut dates, and the former had a really enticing featurette. The guys discuss their feelings, which spawns off into a discussion about how TV shows are sometimes better suited for book adaptations.

Warner wasn’t done yet though. News came out that ANOTHER Game of Thrones prequel pilot has been greenlit. The show is rumored to be set 300 years prior to the most recent iteration documenting the beginning of the end for the Targaryen empire.

Also on Episode 44, Aaron and Jared gave their opinions on the casting of Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop in the Hawkeye show on Disney+.

Lastly the guys gave their thoughts on Disney+ bringing back the classic Saturday morning animated shows, and some of their memories around these shows. For fans of Jared from Project T, he also talks about Ducktales!
